yeah but these aren't wiccan right? they are pagan, that encompasses lots of non christian and/or catholic beliefs...
I, myself, don't use or believe in those symbols right there, I am a druidist and I believe a whole other kind of everything =)

This is amazing.
May I use this in my journal that I recently wrote talking about the pagan symbols? Your picture here is proving my point in it. I will credit you.

1)Pagan is very much a religion. It is the oldest religion in the world.
2)Paganism has never been nor will it ever be a vehicle for Satan worship.
3)Inverted, or upside-down pentagrams are for satanists.

Please do your research or change the title, for it does not have much variety.

1) Incorrect. The oldest religions of the world are pagan. But the oldest religions of the world are not named Pagan. Shamanism is an ancient pagan religion. There is no such thing as Paganism, it is a mistake to use that word.

2) Paganism does not exist as a religion in itself. It is a blanket term, and since Satanism is included under that blanket term, technically you are incorrect.

3) I am not an expert on pagan symbology. I do have access to wikipedia though.

I am aware that Satanists use an "upside-down" pentagram. That's nice. That does not mean that all "upside-down" pentagrams indicate Satanism, just as all "right-side up" pentagrams don't indicate Christianity. That's right, Christians use a "right-side up" pentagram - by your logic that means all "right-side up" pentagrams indicate Christianity. [link] I'm sure we all agree that Christians are not the only people who use "right-side up" pentagrams.

Does anyone else (non-Satanists) use "upside-down" pentagrams? Hey, look at that. I spent a minute doing research and found two groups which are not satanists who do. The Wiccans and the Order of the Eastern Star. [link]
[link]

So you are incorrect again.

I am not trying to make anyone feel bad, but pointing out these flaws in logic and knowledge is what I do, especially when you tell someone to do research and you obviously haven't done any yourself. You need to be educated. Everyone, including myself, learned something today about pagan religions, satanism, and symbology. Yay for knowledge.

Instead of explaining it myself, I will paste below...
You are the one who should do your research and find out that Pagan is not a religion, but a term that has an etymology and a history...
also, the upside down pentagram, is not only used my Satanists... more research...

here it is... from here [link]

Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic"[1]) is a blanket term used to refer to various polytheistic, non-Abrahamic religious traditions. Its exact definition may vary.[2] It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe before Christianization. In a wider sense, extended to contemporary religions, it includes most of the Eastern religions, and the indigenous traditions of the Americas, Central Asia and Africa, as well as non-Abrahamic folk religion in general. More narrow definitions will not include any of the world religions and restrict the term to local or rural currents not organized as civil religions. Characteristic of pagan traditions is the absence of proselytism and the presence of a living mythology, which explains religious practice.

The term pagan is a Christian adaptation of the "gentile" of Judaism, and as such has an inherent Abrahamic bias, and pejorative connotations among Western monotheists,[3] comparable to heathen and infidel also known as kafir (كافر) and mushrik in Islam. For this reason, ethnologists avoid the term "paganism," with its uncertain and varied meanings, in referring to traditional or historic faiths, preferring more precise categories such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism, or animism.

Since the later 20th century, Pagan or Paganism has become widely used as a self-designation by adherents of Neopaganism.[4] As such, various modern scholars have begun to apply the term to three groups of separate faiths: Historical Polytheism (such as Celtic polytheism, Norse paganism, and Hellenic Polytheistic Reconstructionism also called Hellenismos), Folk/ethnic/Indigenous religions (such as Chinese folk religion and African traditional religion), and Neopaganism (such as Wicca and Germanic Neopaganism).

Um Paganism is not at all Satanisim. The symbols are in a diangonal direction are Satanisim. But pagans do not beilive in Satan or devil! That is not what the religion is about!!

There is no such religion as Paganism. Using this term is a mistake. Again, check the link that Nep posted in response to IronicEuphoric and you will learn the truth.

Some pagans do worship Satan. They are satanists. Some pagans, like say the ancient Greeks, worshipped Zeus.

Thus, there is no problem with these symbols. If you don't like them because you think they are satanic, don't use them.

Also I did read what IronicEuphoric16 said and that person is right. Paganism goes back to ancient Ireland and it does not include satanism.

This religion is about peace and does no evil. And paganism is not satanism because pagans believe in no devil or hell!! So how do pagans worship satan if they don't believe there is one?O.o

ForgottenSoul, I'm very sorry but you are incorrect.

Pagan is not a religion.
Paganism is not a religion.

Pagan is a term. A pagan is ANYONE who is not christian, jewish or muslim.

Do you understand that?

If not, there is no point in talking to you.

Cormrael, You are not pagan if you don't practice it! I don't need to understand you! You don't know what your saying. I know very well the things I read about.

There is no point talking to you why did you even reply to the comment in the first place? Lol! You can share your veiws about this to who ever it doesn't matter what you think, no one cares:ignore:

Pagans are proud for who they are and you can't change their veiws on something you don't practice. Do you understand that? If not don't lecture people about what is pagan...bye:wave:

I am pagan, nitwit. My religion is Celtic Reconstructionism.

You're pagan too? GREAT.

What religion?

Note: "pagan" or "paganism" is not a possible answer to this question.

Um I didn't say I didn't like them. I have read about paganism and thought about converting to it. I thought the person was mistaken by the symbols.

I know... but pagan is not a religion..pagan is everything outside religions that are based in the Bible...
and I have never said that it was either...but since it is all pagan... it is the brush set
there are many pagan religions...
that set isn't about just one.

:iconiseul-vampyredesigns:
this is rather old..but it kind of irked me. >.> <.<
being Pagan is -not- the same as being Satanic.
And they are the wrong way-Pagans use the Pentacle to symbolize the five elements, Satanists use the Pentagram, which represents Satan and the "upside-down body" or the such.
They're very different..
Sorry for the slight..attack, if you can call it that..I'm Pagan, and I am far from being Satanic. >.o

You misunderstood what Nep was saying. As the link she pasted below shows, anyone who is not jewish, christian, or muslim is pagan. So yes, by definition ALL satanists are pagan, since they are not jewish, christian, or muslim.

The misunderstanding comes from you thinking that since all satanists are pagan, then all pagans are satanists. This is NOT what Nep said, and is, as we all agree, completely incorrect.

In fact, almost all pagans are not satanists, since pagan is such a huge blanket term for religions.
